Japan can blow my mind with this PonPonPon stuff. This video was directed (I think) by Sebastian Masuda - the owner of 6% doki doki and this is a shop for "extreme kawaii (extreme cute)" ~ so they say ~ stuff.
This video is a priceless Harajuku fashion style demonstration at its best.
This Harajuku stuff that are so popular in Japan and in some parts of the world.
原宿 (Harajuku) is the common name of an area around Harajuku Station, and it gathers around some gothic lolita(young girls dressed in gothic cloths), visual kei (some eccentric way of dressing up with make up and some rock attitude), decora (tons of accessories) and, yep, some cosplayers(dress up like anime characters). They socialize with each other and they are quite happy.
|see? they are happy a lot.|
How this fashion style works? I mean, how something can be Extreme Kawaii (Extreme cute).
So, for example, if pink (color) is something cute, they gonna use something extremely pink. Got it?
Yeah, I know. Quite confusing. So warchildPost will give you some tip on putting things on the extreme side. Let me try translate this concept with something around my world of violence and pain... Ok. So... If you break a nail, the Harakuju style would be something like, cutting your entire finger off. Hah, now you got it?
Ok, but they are about being cute, so you got no harm at all. Too bad. This きゃり (Kyari, the girl in the video) used to be a customer of the 6%doki doki shop. And asked for the manager to help with a video clip or something, and you got this.
|A male lolipop can fall in love with this. maybe.|
Dang catchy song and weird stuff going around. Somehow it remembers me the Blanka stage soundtrack. The girl of the video clip is quite a superstar in Japan. And you probably don't know shit (or are at the same ground) as me. I have no problem with weird stuff, since I am the guy who thinks that people should stick with they feel it is right. So, goes on.
If I commit some mistakes translating this entire new (for us) culture in the blog, please let me know. Since this is not my culture at all and my Nihongo is quite poor, I can get some misinterpretation around the corner...so yeah. Anyway! Thats that. The PonPonPon is not only some -another- Japanese "weird" video clip at random. It is something "weird" with a whole concept behind it. haha. But that doesn't matter if one doesn't know that. At lay eyes, this is just weed. But now you know!
Blame Otaku-verse Zero ( #OVZero ) for this.
I was living a happy life, and saw this at their show.

These days I've get my old Atari CCE some beers and had a good time playing with friends. I'm really nostalgic about old games and I've made some research about creating 8bit music and stuff... and I see this video of a japanese dude playing 8bit music direct by his gameboy: live at Tenjin, Fukuoka.
The song is called: Maru - Insane Youth

I see Microsoft as a giant lurker in the shadows. Just waiting. You now, Outlook Express was forever there, and it was something so...meh! Microsoft saw small enterprises popping from the ground being huge. Netscape, Mozilla, Google and others putting their products in a freezer. Sure, Microsoft saw a lot of them dying aswel while the big M marched on... But Microsoft was holding onto Windows, and third parties were making a party inside of it. Explorer is so far a weak browser, outlook is a ZzzZ mail viewer for a common user. Hotmail was something quite popular, and together with MSN was The Tool. Microsoft put their hands on it, but now Messenger and hotmail (still "crowded"), get some wacky feelings. At least for me. Sounds crappy, messy and insecure. My hotmail services are for junk or forum logins. MSN I have retired for quite some while.
Google get Chrome and Gmail into my life so strongly that I got the browser into my iPad and got my ass saved by Gmail security when Linkedin fucked up everything. So Microsoft actually has no roles in my life since I got an Mac environment to work on. So yeah. Kinda troublesome for them to lose me, particularly cause I was trained by Mczee to start using computers. Yeah. Deal with it Life. Freaking Mczee.
Now they give up hotmail. They are betting in system integration. Twitter, Skype, Facebook friendly enviroment. And their pride is so strong... outlook.com! Woah! After so many years, in the shadows... being overwhelmed by its concurrents... outlook takes it spot on the sun with some huge tools with it.
I just wonder about the integration of it... you know! I have 3 hotmail. Logged in about many services and forums. It will change the name? I will lose the access to this places? No recovery mail solution? Oh, crap!
